[SOLVED] XAMPP mysql Starts then Stops


Problem:
  • Trying to start MySql on Xampp on Windows 7
  • Mysql starts then stops or doesnt even start at all

Diagnosis: Mysql or a sql service may already be running on the given port, preventing mysql from starting.

Solution:

  1. Open Task Manager, and go to Services
  2. Navigate to "M" 
  3. Halt all mysql, mysql55 services that are running.
  4. Now start your mysql from Xampp!!
